Quick note

So, wow. Again with the wow! We’ve sold out of the cards, I’m completely shocked. Thank you all so much. ❤

Woah!

Wow okay hi guys! xD How are you all? 😀 I hope you’re okay and that the weather is better where you are than what we’re having at the moment (look, it’s a must to mention the weather at some point, okay? xD)!

I’m alright, just in a bit of shock really! xD Can’t quite believe what’s happened the past three days, it’s been quite hectic but it’s certainly been nice to be doing something interesting! So after announcing the big news, as of right now (31/1/14 at 16:14) I have sold 11 packs of cards! Can’t get my head around it! There’s also been a request for something a little different to the current cards for sale, which I am hoping will be done by the end of next month, fingers crossed!

Quite a few people have received theirs already, including mum’s friend Katy and she very kindly blogged about them here! It very nearly made me cry as it was so sweet! That has resulted in a lot of traffic to my blog so when I logged in just now to do this post, I was a bit staggered xD

Anyway, I just want to thank everyone who has ordered so far, it really means a lot. You have no idea! I hope it doesn’t seem like I’m bragging about it but it’s just so way beyond what I had imagined doing at nearly 17 (well, to be fair I hadn’t imagined anything so) I’m just blown away by it! I think we may need to order in some more as there are only a few left. Oh dear xD

Another reason as to why these past few days are so busy, a conversation between me and one of my friends has resulted in us making a blog (yet another one. Sorry xD) and writing a detective story! It came from an ordinary conversation, but it evolved into Wraith and Rose. Guess where the Rose came from? ;D We’ve got chapter one up, and hopefully we should be updating every week. I’m also hoping to write some more with Ann, so it’s gonna be busy this year xD

Well, I’m going to go now. I have some orders to package up! xD Thank you to everyone who has supported me, it really does mean a lot to me. ❤
See you soon,

Big News

Look, it even got capital letters. It must be important! 😀 Well, good day to you all, unless it’s night-time. Then good night? No, that sounds weird. Sorry.

Do you remember when I wrote about all the plans I had? I said I had a super big top-secret one. Well, now is the time to tell you about it! 😀 I think I’ve mentioned before that I do like a bit of photography, now and then. Well, a while ago I had a mini photo shoot with my mum for what will be a new venture. It’s been very hard to keep it a secret from you all, but I can finally show and tell! *happy dance*

We turned the photos I had taken into cards and voilà! Here they are in all their glory! 😀

How exciting!

How exciting!

It’s quite weird seeing my creations on a card, although very exciting! Hopefully you all like them. They are for sale on Etsy here, if you’re interested in them! 🙂

I think that’s all for now, just wanted to say about it really 😀 Hope you’re all having a good day/night and I’ll see you soon. 🙂

PS: One day I’ll do the post I’m supposed to do . . . One day . . . xD

What’s been happening

I can never think of titles. Yes, one day I will actually do the blog post I’m meant to, just be patient! xD

I’d like to thank everyone (you know who you are) for commenting on the frustration post and checking if I was alright. You guys don’t understand how much that means to me! I’m in a slightly better place than I was but I think the winter blues have caught up with me as I’m feeling more and more sad lately. I think I’ll be okay though, just need to go outside a bit more and not over think things and I’ll be on the mend soon. At least, that’s what the positive side of me keeps saying!

The past few days I’ve been doing some more violin practise and a lot of it is coming back to me, which feels amazing! Soon I’ll be back to the almost grade one standard I was. ;D Then today I managed a walk (first time in two years!) by myself and ah I’ve missed walking. It was a bit nippy (understatement) but I think I took some okay pictures, will have to wait for the film to be developed! I hope to be able to go on more soon. 🙂

Hmm, what else has been happening . . . Ah yes,  today I had my quick read of the BBC News site (like I do nearly every hour) and it said that the WWI diaries had been released online! I got excited about it and did a little research and well, here I am! Signed up on the site and hoping to do daily work to help the National Archives and the Imperial War Museum with discovering more about WWI. That’s always a good way to cheer yourself up, isn’t it? I know, I know, I’m in history geek heaven but still! Isn’t that amazing?!

So apart from that not a lot has been happening. I had a family get together for an early birthday party for my cousin and then I attempted to do some more of my history coursework. Note the word attempted.

I’m not really sure if I’ve got any more news but once I do I’ll be here telling you!
See you soon!

Frustration

Hello! I know this isn’t the post I promised but I’m having a few issues, this time not with WordPress! I’ll say before this won’t make any sense and I’m sorry for that. xD I want to document this so I’ll probably be okay tomorrow but yeah. Just wanted to get this out.

I’ll be 17 next month and it’s really freaking me out. I’m closer to 20 than I am to 10. What happened there, time?!

I’m not really sure how to explain this, but I’ll try my best. I still feel like I’m 11-14. I really can’t explain it. I don’t feel like I’m 17. I know I shouldn’t, but I’m comparing myself to other people and it just makes me upset. I can’t express myself and explain what I want to say, it ‘s so hard. This blog post is going to be a mess xD

Basically, I can’t put my words into the right order or even think of the words I want. I know this is probably down to brain fog but still. It also makes me annoyed because I was, what I love to call myself (without sounding up myself), “smart”. I knew I was intelligent and until I got my depression I was definitely smarter than some of my peers. That’s where the stuck at 11 comes in. Once I became poorly everything stopped. So I still have the mind of an 11-year-old when I know I’m capable of so much more. I just can’t do it. It’s making me cry thinking about it oh god. *breathes*

It just frustrates me knowing I could be so high up where I want to be but I’m being held back. This is why my goal for this year is to kick my own arse and focus on improving my mind. I hate not being able to do what I want to do. A lot of people (I have witnesses to prove I’m not making this up, okay) have said I’m eloquent and that makes me pleased but I don’t feel it. I don’t feel “smart” and I don’t feel eloquent. I feel a jumbled mess and I really don’t like it.

I think it will always be one of my weaknesses. I’m a high achiever (which I think we’ve covered) and I sort of like the security of knowing what’s happening (stops anxiety, ya know).

Argh, I really don’t think I should have written but I need to get it out of my system. I’m sorry that you’ve had to read my ramble, I know it doesn’t make any sense. It makes no sense in my mind tank, either.

Hopefully I’ll be back soon, with a better post than this.
Sorry again,
Jess x
(I’ll be okay. I feel better for letting it out)

Happy New Year!

HAPPY NEW YEAR GUYS! 😀

I hope you all had a good night (and if you drink, I hope your hangover isn’t tooooo bad)! 😀 I also hope you had a great Christmas (and if you don’t celebrate it a very good Wednesday). 🙂

My new year started with people running down the streets shouting “HAPPY NEW YEAR!” and clapping. Very amusing. ;D We also got to see the fireworks from my mum and dad’s bedroom window, which were rather pretty. 🙂 We literally ran up the stairs after the countdown and watched the fireworks from here. I’ve only just watched the ones that London had. xD

I’ve got a few plans for the year ahead, so hopefully they’ll all work out. Top Secret stuff is happening and I’m not sure when, but it’s happening soon. Then most of it is to focus on my education (watch this go down the drain) and write. I have a lot of writing to do! I’m also hoping I can update this blog more than once a month (we did quite well last year, didn’t we?) so expect a couple more posts this month. 🙂

I did say I would have pictures for this post, but um. Hmm. I do have pictures from Christmas Day, Boxing Day and a few from the 28th (those were family days). Maybe I’ll do a post about one of the very special things I received from my nan. *nods* Remind me to do that. xD

Today, so far, has been quite relaxed. Dad and I watched Gangsta Granny, which was fabulous (even if I nearly cried at the end) and mum has been organising her fabric. Pretty normal day in my household. xD

Anyway, I shall leave you to it. Hopefully I shall do another post soon. 🙂 I hope you all have a lovely rest of your day. 🙂
See you soon,
Jess x
